BA (Hons) - Outdoor and Experiential Learning (Top Up)
You have a passion for the outdoors and a desire to share it with others. Studying our outdoor and experiential learning top-up course will enable you to consolidate your knowledge and experience in outdoor education whilst enjoying great facilities at our Lake District campus.
This course is designed for you if you have a foundation degree or Higher National Diploma (HND) in outdoor education, or similar. And it's perfect if you haven’t got a firm career path in mind.
If you’re an adventure-lover seeking a career in the outdoors, and have completed a related foundation degree or HND, then what better place to study outdoor and experiential learning than within 912 square miles of the iconic Lake District National Park – a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
From your unrivalled base in Ambleside, you’ll have more than 150 lofty peaks, 16 lakes and an abundance of rivers – quite literally a classroom on your doorstep.
And you’ll use it often, because we don’t separate practical experience from academic knowledge – it is integral to it – so you’ll always back up your theoretical knowledge with real-life scenarios.
On this course you will...
- Be able to work with a range of groups in order to further develop your facilitation skills.
- Be able to undertake a personal research project on a subject of your choice which will help you in your future career aspirations.
- Have access to a range of outdoor equipment that you can utilise in your free time to further develop your technical skills.
- Be part of a larger community of students and share some modules which will help with your networking and opportunity to make the most of your time in Cumbria.
